"Probe Droid Problem" is a mini-comic created by Chris Eliopoulos and Jordie Bellaire that was published in Darth Maul 1. It features a DRK-1 Dark Eye probe droid, and is set during the events of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace.

Plot summary[edit | edit source]

Shortly after being released into the Tatooine desert to find Queen Amidala, an unnamed probe droid discovered an unnamed labor droid trapped under some fallen rubble. The probe attempted to abandon the unfortunate mechanic, but was stopped when it grabbed hold of the probe and pulled itself free. The probe angrily hovered away, only to look back and see that the labor droid was following. The probe zoomed away, quicker this time, and made great distance before being abducted by some stealthy Jawas.

While in captivity, the probe hovered around inside the massive sandcrawler in dismay. He was suddenly rescued, however, when the labor droid pried open the vessel's wall and pulled the probe to freedom. Back at Darth Maul's ship, the probe decided to remain on Tatooine with his new friend, and they zoomed off together into the horizon.
